Jeni’s story

I was diagnosed in 2005 I was just 28 years old. I am now 36 and all I can say is. .. Get out there and enjoy life..I can’t do half the stuff I use to… my strength. . My eyes. .. my hearing… my walking.. getting up and down. . I take Humria.. And I honestly could not live without it..I get lots of walking in and I stay busy as much as I can. .. but I still hurt every day every second.

    Jeni, thanks for sharing. Way to stay busy and as active as possible. But it is hard when RA starts taking away parts of our lives. We just have to make the best of what we still have.

    Hi Jeni – Thank you so much for taking the time to share your story. I agree that it is frustrating not to be able to do things that used to be easy – especially at a young age. I hope that the Humira continues to help you! Please hang in there and remember that we are here to support you!
